Ismaily, Egypt's third most successful club, have named Egyptian coach Tarek Yehia as their new boss after Heron Ricardo resigned following a string of poor results.

The Dervishes, who already started the season with a six-point deduction for failing to fulfill their financial obligations towards a former player, extended their winless run to four matches after playing out a 1-1 draw with Masry in the Egyptian Premier League on Thursday.

Ricardo, who was in his second spell with Ismaily after a highly successful stint saw the club come to within touching distance of winning the league title before losing to bitter rivals Ahly in a 2009 playoff,  consequently stepped down.

"Ricardo's assistants will remain in the backroom staff," Ismaily said in a brief statement on their official website.

Tarek Yehia also left Masry after some disappointing results. He is famed for turning normally struggling outfits to mid-table sides.  

Ismaily, who are ninth in the table, have won the last of their three league titles in 2002 in one of the most remarkable seasons in the competition's history.
